Barley Sprouts

Hydroponically sprouted barley fodder is classed as grass-fed and is one of the most nutritious livestock feeds on the planet.

Barley sprouts...

  • 90% + digestibility leading to rapid weight gain regardless of seasonality
  • Animals fed with fodder in their diet are healthier, happier & calmer
  • Fresh, clean, sprouted barley will bring additional enzymes and phyto-compounds not available in conserved feeds
  • Increases in Omega 3, amino acids, natural hormones in cattle
  • Sprouts in animal diets have proven to increase Omega-3 levels (This applies to meat, milk and eggs). When the animals are healthier the benefits are passed along to us.

The hydroponic methodology allows consistent product regardless of seasonal conditions or need for a large amount of water making it drought-proof.

Cows love the taste, and with padock-to-plate traceability customers love it too.
